USA Volleyball and Blue Diamond Almond Breeze have partnered for the 2016 Summer Olympic Games, making Almond Breeze the organization’s Official almondmilk. Blue Diamond, the world’s largest almond processing company, will be providing Almond Breeze to USA Volleyball team members, coaches, trainers, chefs and nutritionists as a good alternative to dairy beverages.
“USA Volleyball welcomes Blue Diamond Almond Breeze to our growing list of valued partners,” USA Volleyball Secretary General Kerry Klostermann said. “By partnering with Almond Breeze, a beverage that offers consumers and athletes a healthy lifestyle option, we can provide added value to our National Team athletes and support staff to promote greater success in training and competition. Our athletes serve as healthy, strong and courageous role models for our hundreds of thousands of junior athletes, and this partnership helps connect the two groups with better-for-you choices.”
Blue Diamond Almond Breeze will not only help fuel Team USA Volleyball athletes, but will have a presence at select USA Volleyball events, including the USA Junior Beach Tour and Tour Championships, 2016 USA Volleyball Girls’ Junior National Championships, 2016 USA Volleyball Boys’ Junior National Championships and the USA Volleyball Open National Championships.
“We are thrilled to partner with and support Team USA Volleyball as they prepare for GOLD in the 2016 Rio Summer Olympic games,” said Suzanne Hagener, Group Marketing Manager at Blue Diamond Growers. “Blue Diamond Growers has been a longtime supporter and partner of various US teams. The USA Volleyball Teams are tireless in their efforts to train and perform, and Almond Breeze could not be more proud to support and fuel these athletes with our variety of almondmilk.”
